Today, in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally

farmer and part-Indian mother. Her doctorate in History is from the
University of California, Los Angeles specializing in Western Hemisphere 
and Indigenous histories.  From 1967 to 1972, she was a full time 
activist and a leader in the women's liberation movement. In 1974, she 
began working with the International Indian Treaty Council, beginning a 
lifelong commitment to international human rights, lobbying for 
Indigenous rights at the United Nations.

She is author or editor of 12 books, including /The Great Sioux Nation:
An Oral History of the Sioux Nation, Roots of Resistance: A History of
Land Tenure in New Mexico, Indians of the Americas: Human Rights and
Self-Determination/, and most recently, /An Indigenous Peoples' History
of the United States/. She is also author of a memoir trilogy/: Red
